28 Þund

Think of the course of a river – can we see that in a spiritual context?
And how on earth could we get the Laws of Nature into that picture?

Svinnur-Do all these rivers in our Norse myths have anything to do with man’s life?
-They are all about the cycles of renewal, these perpetual nourishing cycles of evolution.

Pitch for Þund  1 min 17 sec:

The text for 1 minute pitch Þund  (above):
28 Þund

Þund is a river. A mythological river. One of many many in Norse mythology. Can you imagine a river flowing towards the ocean, becoming one with it. Then water evaporates from the ocean-surface, forms clouds, which move with the wind. Hitting mountains they become rain or snow. Brooks come into being, and also ground-water-beds are formed in the earth. Nourishing all life. Brooks flow down mountain-slopes, forming rivers, which eventually flow towards the ocean. What a beautiful cycle as symbolic language for our evolution!  We transcend, imbibe correlation and knowledge, return to the world of thoughts and actions.
Dharma is that which upholds. Cycles are really nourishing and upholding all life. And we should know the purpose and goal of life:  evolution towards perfection, enlightenment.

More to ponder on:

* why would this analogy work 1)rivers and 2)the cycle of gaining knowledge from within? (consider ocean clouds rain springs brooks rivers)
* has every phenomenon its dharma its purpose, its road/way/path to its goal?
* where from does the flawless and all-powerful orderliness come?
* what price-cup do einherjar enjoy – humbly and even-minded?
* can we know which actions and thoughts are in tune with the mighty flow of life’s purpose?
* will we know “right action” when we start nýsa niður?
* what makes us, accidently, get into hrímþursar and goats’ urine? (stagnation on our evolutionary path)
* can we consider to be some lack of proper education when we know nothing about our spiritual evolution not even told what we are here for? know not what we should be doing as a living man on earth?
* can we know that which nobody teaches us?
* can we know all, live all, live in accordance with the mighty flow of Þund if we nose down to The Field of All Knowledge?
* do highly evolved men understand better than those on low stages?
* what would be, and why, the huge difference of cognition by a crude man and by a pure man?
* why do we live in a body?
* is a body any boundaries as it is all Gungnir?
* is mind able to expand to Glaðheimar, unbounded width?
* does a man who lives Glaðheimar spontaneously support Þund with all his thoughts and actions?
* is his power all-evolutionary?
* where does negativity not exist?

Til umhugsunar:

* hvers vegna virkar samlíkingin á ám annars vegar og hins vegar á ferli okkar við að nema upp þekkinguna miklu? (ath í ferlinu: haf uppgufun ský regn uppsprettu læki ár)
* hvert einasta fyrirbæri hefur sitt dharma, sinn tilgang og sína leið að takmarki sínu hvaðan kemur þetta fullkomna snurðulausa skipulag?
* hvaða dollu hampa einherjar — í lítillæti og með jafnaðargeði?
* getum við vitað hvað er í Þundarflæði með tilgangi lífsins?
* er klaufaskapur að lenda óafvitandi í hrímþursum og geitahlandi? (stöðnun)
* er menntunarskorti um að kenna að við kunnum ekki að þróast?  vitum ekki einu sinni að við erum hér að þróast til fullkomnunar?
* getum við vitað það sem enginn kennir okkur?
* getum við vitað allt og skilið allt og lifað í Þundarflæði, ef við nýsum niður þangað sem öll þekking er?
* skilja háþróaðir betur en ósvinnir?
* er reginmunur á skilningi andlega háþróaðra manna og lítt þróaðra?
* skiljum við til hvers við vorum að búa þennan háþróaða kropp til?
* er líf í kroppi tækifæri? getur hugur gert allt í þessum Gungnis-kroppi?
* er eðli hugans að lifa Glaðheima?
* er allt lífið sjálfkrafa í Þundarflæði ef við lifum Glaðheima?
